Why teach in Glades County?

 The Glades County School District is in Southcentral Florida nestled between the blue waters of the Atlantic and the white sand gulf coast beaches. We have all the advantages of a small-town environment with metropolitan areas just a short drive away.


The Glades County School District offers higher pay, great benefits, we accept all past teaching experience, and a lower cost of living compared to the majority of other areas in the state. Our community is centered on our school system. Community supporters and partners are committed to the success of both students and teachers.

If you're looking to start your career in education or you’re an experienced educator that needs a change Glades County School District wants you!

What Glades County has to offer beyond the Classroom.

Glades County is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts from world class fishing in Lake Okeechobee or cruising the Caloosahatchee River to kayaking and camping at Fisheating Creek State Park. If that wasn’t enough the Florida Everglades, a national environmental treasure, is just to our south. We also offer eight parks and other recreational activities.
